Film Kick Off Party

May 18th, 2010

Last weekend, Lara, Marcia and myself had a small gathering in my tiny Tokyo apartment for the film kick off party.  We crammed 30 people in, served them some wine and pasta and then gave a 10 min presentation on how we got started on the film, introduced the characters that we will be following, and then showed them a seven minute edit of our first character, Davd Yano’s story.

Here are pics from the party taken by Mike Connolly
